How does three weeks go by so quickly? It has and here we are with another posting for the HQAL.
It seems like forever since I have been working on the individual ‘T’ blocks. I finally decided to stop and take a look at what I had.
Spread out on a queen size bed, not convinced this will be the lay out but it has given me a good idea on whats going on. I am going to stop making blocks and put this baby together.
I have to say I am not thrilled with the multi colored blocks. My original vision was so different but they’re done now. So on to deciding what I want to do with the sashing.
My thought was because they are so uniquely different a frame of black may be what’s called for. A dark brown? A solid dark wood grain fabric? I think a light color is totally out, am I wrong? I just feel because there is no real rhyme or rhythm to these blocks, I needed to isolate them and make them feel individual.
Color, ideas welcome please 🙂
I also made another small pillow using the scraps from one of the last blocks. I backed it with a beautiful section from a vintage table runner, edged with a string of pearls I thought was just perfect with the red dotted material.
Another pillow ready for gifting
Take a moment and be sure to visit the pages of the other participants in this HQAL. There is some amazing hand work going on 🙂
